Friday the thirteenth of February 1948 is Hannah Gordon’s thirty-sixth birthday. Her daughter Allie turns sixteen on the very same day. What’s more, it’s a full moon. Hannah doesn’t need Grandma Ade’s warning that bad luck is coming to realise the odds are against them.
Hannah Gordon has always wanted to be someone important, yet she’s stuck in an inner-city back street, fighting to keep hold of her children, her home and her sense of self. Then a devastating accident sets of a chain of events that will rock the family foundations to the core and change lives forever.
